In a couple of weeks the girl who made me a mama will turn 9. Sometimes I can’t believe it! I can’t believe that I’m old enough to have a 9 year old! I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since this ball of energy with a personality that’s bigger than her came screaming into our lives! Our world forever changed the day she entered this world. Brianna is a very strong willed child. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t. She is very independent. She was born a diva! She is so smart- too smart for her own good sometimes! And even though we butt heads a lot I wouldn’t change her for anything! That strong willed, independent personality is going to serve her well in this life, as long as we can teach her to channel it when and where appropriate! I’m grateful for her infectious laugh and the way she loves her brothers. She is definitely the princess in our home. (That doesn’t mean she gets when she wants all the time though, much to her dismay!!) I love this girl so much!
I thought for the next few Throwback Thursdays I would share with you a few of my favorite pictures of Bri. She has always been so photogenic and taking pictures of her is always so fun.
First up, her first official photo: her hospital picture.
Weight 7 lbs. 6.5 oz
Length 20 1/2 inches
Born November 19, 2004 at 3:24 am
Labor about 13 hours, delivered with the assistance of forceps after about 2 hours of pushing.
Head full of black hair
Looked just like mommy as a newborn (has since started looking more and more like her daddy)
Instantly had everyone who met her wrapped around her finger.
I knew immediately our lives would never be the same!
We love you Brianna Michelle!
